    Well I got some eggs from my friends chickens and put them in the bator...the rooster is a B.O., then he has B.O., NHR, and barred rock hens.
    Obviously I'll get some cute blondies, but what will the others look like as chicks? adults?
    I want to keep the B.O. then I'll give the mixes to another friend who just wants eggs and doesn't really care what color they are...but how will I tell which are which?

    as soon as they feather out, the BO's will have solid buff colored feathers.

    the rest will have mixed colors on the feathers. [​IMG]

    Thing is she wants to get them as chicks so her boys will raise them...any ideas on telling when they are still peepers?

    So I figured out that the BO roo x BR hens will be a black sexlink, females solid black, males with a spot on the head...
    I don't think the BO x NHR will be sexlinked, but will they be more red as chicks than BO x BO?
